The 2012–13 FA Cup was the 132nd season of the FA Cup, the main domestic cup competition in English football, and the oldest football knock-out competition in the world. It was sponsored by Budweiser for a second consecutive season.

A total of 833 clubs applied to enter,with 758 clubs being accepted into the competition. The preliminary rounds commenced on 11 August 2012, with the first round proper played on 3 November 2012. The final was played on 11 May 2013 at Wembley Stadium in London between Manchester City and Wigan Athletic, with Wigan Athletic winning 1–0 following the sacking of Roberto Mancini by Manchester City.

As a result, Wigan Athletic participated in the group stage of the following season's UEFA Europa League. Chelsea were the defending champions, having beaten Liverpool 2–1 in last season's final, but were eliminated in the semi finals by Manchester City.

Three days after winning the cup, Wigan made history by becoming the first side to win the cup and get relegated in the same season, after they lost 4–1 to Arsenal, which sealed their relegation to the Football League Championship.

Second round proper

The draw for this round was made on 4 November 2012 with the ties played on the weekend of 1–2 December 2012.

Hastings United, from the seventh tier of English football, were the lowest-ranked team in the second round proper.

Bradford City were removed from this season's competition for fielding Curtis Good, who was ineligible to play, in a 1–1 draw against Brentford, although Bradford subsequently won their appeal to the FA against expulsion and were reinstated and fined £1,000 instead.
